Queen Elizabeth II is concerned by allegations of racism raised by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, during their blockbuster interview with Oprah Winfrey, Buckingham Palace officials said Tuesday.

"The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan," read a statement from the palace on behalf of the Queen.

"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning," the statement continued. "While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."

During the Sunday night interview, Meghan and Harry said there had been “concerns and conversations" within the royal family about how dark the skin of their son, Archie, would be.

On Monday morning, Winfrey told CBS that although Harry would not say who had made the racist comments about their son's skin, he clarified that "it was not his grandmother or grandfather who were part of those conversations."

During the interview, the pair also accused the royal family of not doing more to defend Meghan amid racist attacks from the press. They also said that the pressure and lack of support resulted in Meghan having suicidal thoughts while she was pregnant.
